Photo etching process Part 1.
Did you know that way before photos were printed on paper they were printed on glass? This might sound a little out there but it’s true! Of course nowadays we use a different method and images come out very different than before but is fascinating to know a little bit of history about it.
This two-part post will help you understand the photoetching process and give you some insight on what it takes to make your beautiful picture into a halftone.
The Halftone term refers to an image made up of a pattern of black dots. The darker areas in the image are represented by larger dots placed close together and the lighter areas by spread-out smaller dots. By altering the size of these dots an illusion of shades of gray can be achieved.
Refer to the image above for an example
In Part 2 we will show you the step by step process of creating a halftone image.
See you then!
